Reasons to move to Auckland

Food scene

Auckland’s food scene packs a punch. Moustache Milk and Cookie Bar is just one of the quirky things about Auckland’s food scene, being a shop and bus that tours around New Zealand. They sell cookies, milkshakes, cookie cakes and cookie bouquets, and have a strong cult following. If you’re hungry for anything else, it’s not hard to find a bowl of buttery Sichuan noodle, sweet ice-cream, and juicy burgers.


With the largest Polynesian community in the world, a blend of Chinese, Indian, English, Fijians, South Africans and more, Auckland is a melting pot of culture. As a result, you can be sure to find delicious food from just about everywhere.

Things to do

Auckland is small, but if you have an interest, you will always find something to do. It offers plenty for the outdoor lover, with beaches, hiking trails, and bodies of water to kayak and sail on. There are a selection of bustling farmers markets, a variety of festivals and events like the Colour Run and the Lantern Festival and if you’re a fan of sport, you will definitely enjoy the madness that is the rugby.

Beautiful and clean

One of the things that New Zealand is internationally known for is its clean and green image. Auckland holds that image up quite well, with a beautiful coastline of pretty beaches, volcanoes, lakes, rivers and islands. You can take a ferry to Waiheke Island for the weekend and go zip-lining through the trees, or trek around Piha’s waterfalls.
